Newbie to Electric Gliders


I have 5 planes now, Supercub, T28 Trojan, Profile Foamy, Modified 1.5kg thrust Stryker :P and a 2m Preadator uav.

Most of the guys down at my local club fly gliders which is getting me thinking
that I would like to get one.

The ones that I have picked out so far are:
thunder tiger e-hawk 1500

asw28

Parkzone Radian

I like the looks of the E Hawk 1500 and Asw28 best but the Radian will work put much cheaper as it comes in a Bnf version that has a 2.4ghz receiver already in it ( I have a DX7 ) .

Can any give their opinions on the performance of these gliders or suggest any others?


Thanks Stephen....

The E-hawk 1500 is the the pick of the bunch well built and a good flier....I agree this should be in the Electric sailplane forum not really scale apart from the ASW 28

I think I've counted the Radian out, it just doesnt seem to be doing anything for me.

Another one I have found is the MultyPlex Blizzard

I fly very large scale sailplanes but have a Radian and it is a fantastic flyer, even for someone who has been flying for years, the Radian gives lots of enjoyment, it thermals absolutley superb, plenty of power, and super cheap in price, not very pretty to look at, but the performance makes up for it, you cannot go wrong with the Radian!
